Chester Bennington’s widow paid tribute to him on the fourth anniversary of his death. Talinda Bennington shared a photo of the Linkin Park singer with a lettuce cup on his head, along with the caption, “You always had a way to make us all laugh. You always made everything better. And when you put this lettuce cup on your head to make us laugh because our food was taking forever, you made everything better once again.”
She continued, “I’m so glad that the kids and I have vast amounts of pictures and videos to remember you by. We miss you every second of every day. You were the best person I have ever known. I see you in our babies every day. Lily is your mini me, with her looks and beautiful voice. Tyler has your wit, intellect, looks, and the same obsession for trying to figure out space and time. And Lila, she has your heart of gold. When they were newborns, you wrote your hopes and dreams for them. God must have seen what you wrote because they are truly everything you wished for them to be.”
She added, “I know you can see them. I would give anything to have you back so they could see you. But that’s why we have our entire life together on home videos. I’m glad I never stopped recording. Today we will watch some of them and remember how f*cking amazing you were. I love you. R.I.P.”
Chester was found dead on July 20, 2017 — on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell.
